Title: Rossi 92 safety
Post by: Black River Smith on August 26, 2019, 04:10:22 pm
A lot of people remove the safety flip-lever but has anyone replaced the safety?  If so, was it easy or hard to do?

I want to remove one but concerned that if I do not like the alteration can I return it to original.  Alteration will be my own approach.

Thanks for any comments.

One pin to remove to swap safety in/out.  Very easy to remove or replace.  I got my blanking plug from Steve's.

PLUS ONE too Jeremiah    ;D

Use to replace that pesky safety on the top of the bolt frequently.  There is a ball and spring in there so you will want to be careful taking it apart.  Steve's Gunz has a very nice replacement "cap" for the hole.  Quite reversible.

I guess the word I should have used instead of 'replaced' was 're-installed' the safety.  I thought the second line clarified the question line.  Sorry if not.

I know that people remove them and put plugs/fillers into the hole.  But the main question was 'has anyone gone back and re-installed the original safety lever'?

How easy is that?

As long as you don't have to chase the small parts, it's about a 10 minute job.  Gun looks a whole lot better without that stupid safety thingie on it.

Coffinmaker,

Thanks for posting an answer.  Appreciate that.

I agree with you about the appearance of the bolt without that chunk of metal there.  That is why I am debating with myself to take it out.  Just wanted to know what it was like to re-insert if something 'needed to be done' afterwards.

Yeah but if you don't have to do that it takes all the fun out of it ;D
